Around sixty athletes from Bedford & County made the trip to South London to compete in the Southern Road Relays at Crystal Palace on 22 September. The Under 13 Girls produced a brilliant team performance to win silver. Competing against over fifty teams from across the South of England, the girls’ team clinched a superb runners up spot in a classy field.

Rosie Foster (12:09.95) got the trio of girls off to a flying start, handing over in sixth place at the end of a very competitive first leg to Lyla Danobrega (12:10.30), who moved the Bedford girls up to second. On the third and final leg it was all down to Lily Farr (12:04.15). The gap to Chiltern Harriers, in first place, was a little too big to bridge, but Lily held off a challenge from Tonbridge AC to secure the Silver. The Under 13 Girls B team of Lucy Deller (13:21.55), Milly Dunger (12:39.45), and Daisy Flemons (14:16.30), also ran well to finish in a very creditable Twenty-Fifth place.
